Event Description

Agriculture has come a long way from the family farm. Canada’s agri-food sector was highlighted by the federal government’s Advisory Council on Economic Growth Report as one of Canada’s high-potential sectors for growth with exports alone generating more than $55 billion per year. In fact, roughly one in nine Canadian jobs depend on the agriculture system. Here in Ontario, where we have just over half of Canada’s best (Class 1) farmland, the agriculture sector is a significant driver of the local economy.

That’s why, whether you work directly with agriculture or not, it’s important to have a handle on some of the key factors that are impacting this vital industry.

Join on February 27th for a hot breakfast buffet and panel discussion at Western Fair District with some of the area’s leading agriculture experts
